    The Tragedy of Macbeth

    Portions of The French Dispatch, C’Mon C’Mon, Passing, BelfastThe Tragedy of Macbeth … can we agree that an uptick in contemporary B&W movies is capital G Good?

    (Not to mention Roma, Mank, Cold War, The Lighthouse.)

    I trust this will be only about Bernstein's creation of the Ghostbusters score and absolutely nothing else.

    Sequel idea: ELF 2: Where Buddy returns to New York to start an advertising agency with his father. They specialize in Christmas ads and make a killing until Buddy becomes jaded and awful and must re-learn the true meaning of Christm– oh, wait. This is SCROOGED. Never mind.

  • House of Gucci

    House of Gucci

    ★★★

    A tragedy of Shakespearean proportions.

    Gaga’s Patrizia is Lady Macbeth without the guilt. Driver’s Maurizio is Macbeth without the hubris.
    Irons’ Rodolfo is Duncan without the stab wounds.
    Pacino’s Aldo is Banquo. Leto’s Paolo is Fleance.
    Huston’s Domenico is Macduff without the loyalty.
    Hayek’s Pina is all three witches.

    Collateral Beauty

    It's shocking – absolutely shocking – that of the movies in which Will Smith shoehorned his son Jaden, this movie, one requiring a YOUNGER VERSION OF WILL SMITH, wasn't one of them.
